Our technical partners offer to solve tasks related to blocking circumvention, promoting VPNs, fighting censorship, and propaganda. Tasks are solved according to the “bounty-hunt” principle: each challenge has an assigned price – from $200 to $1000 for successful implementation. Teams will receive these cash prizes if the mentor (the technical partner in charge of the task) rates the work well.
This is an offline hackathon, so only teams or single participants who are personally present at the site can participate. The project must be completed and submitted to the jury no later than 5 days after the end of the hackathon. The jury makes a decision no later than 72 hours after the submission of the project.
A successfully solved task cannot be solved again by another team. The technology partner (team mentor) may ask to add something to the completed work before accepting your project. The technical partners reserve the right to decide whether a specific task is completed or not. Payment for a successfully completed task is transferred to a bank account, Paypal or Bitcoin.
